Attractions near the Averof Hotel
Discover Cyprus’ rich history
The Cyprus Museum is a little over one kilometre away from the hotel and won’t take you long to reach on foot. At 131 years old, it stands as Cyprus’ largest and oldest archaeological museum, and possesses an almost sacred aura, housing priceless historic artefacts that were found all over the country.
These items mean a lot to the people of Cyprus and as you explore the museum you’ll realise why from the information given about each artefact’s history and importance. Feel free to wander through the 14 rooms, each with its own unique exhibit ranging from clay figurines to thrones found in royal tombs.
Perfect spot for a picnic
If you leave the hotel and follow the nearby river south, you will reach Prodromou Park, a lush and comfortable area that has the perfect setup for a picnic. There’s plenty of shade provided by tall trees and you’ll be able to hear the river gently flowing past while you laze about on the grass.
The park has tables and benches, so you won’t necessarily need to pack a blanket, and it’s pretty popular among the locals who provide a friendly atmosphere. Don’t fret if you accidentally forget the food or drinks, as there are numerous restaurants and bars nearby that make for a nice backup plan.
